“When he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.”  Luke 15:20. Jesus’ parable about a young man who asked for and squandered his inheritance and then in humiliation returned home leaves us amazed at his father’s response. Instead of a lecture or punishment, the father expressed love and forgiveness.  May God enable us to open our arms to others, just as His are open wide to all who turn to Him.   Forgiven sinners know love and show love.
